Moorhead Police Involved in a Pursuit Ending in a One Vehicle Crash

Post Date:11/07/2021 4:15 pm

On November 7, 2021 at 8:20 a.m., Officers were dispatched to the report of a motorist slumped over the steering wheel of a vehicle while stopped at a stoplight.  The vehicle eventually moved and callers continued to follow it until officers located the vehicle on 34th Street South near 12th Avenue South.

Officers attempted to execute a traffic stop with the vehicle due to the suspicion that the driver was operating the motor vehicle while under the influence. The vehicle then fled from officers at a high rate of speed. Officers initiated a pursuit with the vehicle and attempted to stop it twice through the use of stop sticks, but were unsuccessful.

The vehicle eventually left the roadway while travelling south on 34th Street South near the intersection with 30th Avenue South.  The vehicle struck multiple trees, causing the suspect to be pinned inside the vehicle.  The Moorhead Fire Department and Sanford Ambulance responded to assist with extracting the driver.

The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Warren Michael Misevich of Fargo, North Dakota.  Misevich was transported to Sanford Hospital for treatment of his injuries.  Charges are being requested against Misevich for DWI, Fleeing in a Motor Vehicle, Driving After Revocation and multiple traffic offenses.  The extent of his injuries are not known at this time.
